the deal is a plus for so many reasons:
-veterans minimum contract (doesn't count against the cap)
-potential for above average/high payout
-depth in the instance that we unjam the SF/SG logs
arnie's worked his magic before, most notably with antonio mcdyess, and you'd think he'd be able to at least make him substantially better than he was in new york. we're not getting the 2 scoring title t-mac of old, but he should still be a solid, reasonably healthy contributor with arnie's help.
